As Tim Tebow's chances of reaching the big leagues look favorable heading into next season, that won't be the only major development in the Heisman Trophy winner's life.

A month before minor leaguer Tim Tebow heads to spring training with hopes of making it to NY with the Mets in 2019, the outfielder/former quarterback/SEC Network host popped the question to Miss Universe 2017, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters.

So Del-Peters wouldn't suspect anything, Tebow said he was having a late Christmas get-together with his family and wanted to surprise his dad with a new truck.

For about five minutes, Tebow and Nel-Peters talked about their relationship and its future in hushed tones before Tebow, 31, dropped to one knee.

As Nel-Peters said yes, Tebow slipped a 7.25-carat solitaire ring on her finger.

"Thank you for saying YES and making me the happiest man in the world", Tebow said of their engagement. "Demi Leigh Nel-Peters, I love you", he said.

People reported that the proposal was made on Wednesday night outside Tebow's family's farm in Jacksonville, Florida.
